Suppppper in love with the loft. I love the area. I would highly recommend this place. Keith is a great host and spent the time to tell me how things worked in the loft, and had some complimentary food in the fridge - super thoughtful - huge plus!
The apartment was beyond expectations. We loved the design and the possibilities to change the spaciousness of the apartment. But above all we liked the kindness and friendliness with which we were welcomed by Keith. A fridge with food and beverages was a real pleasant surprise. The only thing I can complaint about, is that I should’ve booked two nights instead of one. I would recommend anyone who wants to stay in Antwerp in a really nice neighborhood and an even nicer apartment to book this loft. Thanks again Keith!
Keith was an excellent host going above and beyond to help us make the most of our visit with helpful maps and and information about Antwerp and even lent us a fantastic guide book in English, there was beer and wine in the refrigerator, fruit and flowers in the kitchen, a coffee machine with coffee provided and so many other nice touches it would be impossible to list them all here.
The apartment was in a great part of the city with plenty of bars and only a 10 minute walk to the historical center, it was a wonderfully modern , spacious and quirky place with moveable walls and dimmable lights that change colour, a TV with many channels in English and we were even given an iPad to use during our stay.
All in all I would say to anyone who is planning on visiting Antwerp, stay at Keith's loft 1d , you won't regret it.
This was a real airbnb success story for me! Recently, I have been changing the way I travel, so that the place where I stay is as much as part of the destination as the city itself. This apartment is TOTALLY a destination of its own, especially if you are into design. So interesting, how it is designed, so clean, so minimal, everything cutsom-made, and such a cool use of space. It is almost hard to put into words because it is so unique.
If you are visiting Antwerp and you want to try something new, this is for you! Even though it is a highly designed space, it is packed with friendly amenities - my favorite was the Nespresso machine. It is also located in the coolest part of town, with the best areas for dining and shopping. So it is high design but also really accessible.
In addition, the owners are super friendly, and will help acclimate you to the neighborhood and to the apartment. They have lots of helpful advice to get you started. Their little dog Leni is so cute, too!
Such a great place to stay in a very central location. The photos do not lie with this apartment...it has all you want and is very luxurious. Keith is a very relaxed host with all the information you require. We will definitely be back.
Amazing loft! Great location and very helpful host. Me and my travel companion had a splendid time in Antwerp! :)
I stayed for 2 days with my girlfriend at Keith's design loft. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to stay in a special place for a weekend in Antwerp. The loft is truly something, it's designed by a renowned Belgian interior architect, which is really reflected in the apartment decoration.
Keith is very knowledgeable and patient in explaining the best places to go to in Antwerp, and is an excellent host! He shared booklets, guides, and a filled fridge. Altogether this made it into a great weekend!
We had a good time in Antwerpen. Area 'Zuid' is a very nice place to stay for one or more nights with restaurant, bars en shops close by. The contemporary design of the loft was also very nice, creative thinking in details and solutions of interior designers and owners Philip and Keith.
Nothing is missing during your stay; fresh fruits, fully filled refrigerator, iPad with Antwerpen apps, books with good shops en restaurants etc, flexible check-in and check-out.
I had an amazing stay at Loft 1D. The apartment was spacious, beautiful and very well designed.
Keith was an excellent host, flexible with check in/out and easily contactable.
The neighbourhood turned out to be my favourite in Antwerp, excellent for cafes restaurants and bars as well as shopping. The walk to the centre (10mins) is full of interesting shops and cafes, Antwerp is great for shopping and I'm not usually into that kind of thing.
I will definately stay here again when I next visit Antwerp.
For a start Keith is a very good host. He thinks of everything to give you a nice experience. The loft on itself is an experience. Let yourself surprise by the great design and possibilities of it. Nearby there are very nice restaurants, shops, musea etc. to visit. So the location of the loft is a good starting point to discover Antwerp. So Keith and Filip, thank you very much for our plessant stay in your loft. We sure want to come back! Lavinia & René.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
